bipartisan support. the legislation the then-senator obama supported back in 2006 was co-authored by senator mccain. it had the support of president george w. bush and that reflects what should be a bipartisan consensus behind this important policy. >> if they are saying, if john mccain is saying half the citizenship won't happen until the borders are secure and there's a disagreement on whether or not they are secure, what is the white house going to do toer is if i fie? is there a certain number? >> we talked a lot about the interplay between border security as part of a broader and other measures that are part of broader comprehensive immigration reform. we wait to see what the bipartisan produces in this effort. we insist and this reflects views from both republicans a endemocrats that comprehensive immigration reform is a clear path. that means getting in the back of the line and paying taxes and the like. that is the goal shared by republicans and dats. >> you said that republicans -- [inaudible] i looked at rezurlts that americans are com play september about defense cuts and cutting

to get a sense on how significant a dent that could put in the relationship if president obama says no to the keystone. >> i think it depends on how it is managed between the two leaders. this is a case in which the prime minister believes this is an important issue for canada. it was understandable in the context of the run-up to the presidential election campaign the last time that he was saying no and there were other issues that were more of a local nature as well at the site, it could be accepted as something that was more in the nature of the delay and a flat-out refusal. i think it will be meaningful. it will be important how it is explained if the answer is no. what is the justification? what is the reality that is perceived to come out of it? if their reasons are door that you describe them, i will be found -- that will be found unacceptable and that would be a problem. >> in talking to canadian politicians, there are some things out of joint. a lot of it has to do with the suggestion that if canada were to do more on the climate change front, this might help us. canadian p

are not expecting congress to come up with an agreement. there has been a focus on what can president obama do? keystone is not the only thing we're talking about in the united states. there has been new regulation proposed. that will be where we can make an executive order happened urate also the executive opportunity does extend to keystone. the president has an opportunity there. looking at existing carbon pollution and united states, we have to tackle that. we look at keystone as future carbon emissions. the opportunity here is for the country to work on their climate target together. this should not be a finger pointing exercise. can canada and the united states meet their targets? i think canada has further to go but that can be done. >> the canadian government has said they're going to come out with regulations for the oil and gas sector. we are waiting to see what they are. if they came out with strong regulations that would meet those targets, what groups like yours say that is great? would it make any difference to the opposition to this project? >> we are interested in time a policy

and president obama are a good team, that is what matters. i don't worry so much about his policy positions one way or another. but the fact that they feel that they can be a good team together, that is important. unless the president nominate somebody who is just, in my mind, unqualified or something. i tend to think the leader should be about who he wants. >> thank you, general. [applause] .. we need yours poured and we need your input. and so we changed a few things about the board meeting. we shorten them considerably. we stayed away from the details or to get in on the weeds of how you build a car, but the bigger questions of financing, morale, positioning marketing. the board is very supportive of that and we kept them informed and we just took off. >> up next, fred kaplan tax about general david petraeus and his advisers transferring the military to face my wars against insurgents and terrorists. he spoke at the library in louisville, kentucky for an hour.

of the story coming up later, barbara. thanks very much into here in washington, president obama is doing an end around the national press today. he's taking questions from local tv stations, blaming congress for doing nothing to avoid these forced spending cuts scheduled to take effect in just nine days. so what kind of cuts is the president willing to take? jim acosta confronted the white house press secretary today with that question. jim is joining us now. how did it go? >> reporter: wolf, here we go again. the white house and congress move one day closer to the massive forced spending cuts that go into effect at the end of next week. and even though they both agree it's a problem, they are both busy blaming each other to fix it. the white house sounding the alarm. poor children will be tossed out of classrooms, health services will be slashed, border security will be compromised and the economy will take a hit if forced budgets cuts begin to happen on march 1st and the obama administration says republicans will be to blame. >> the pleas that the republicans are making are throw these
and president obama are a good team, that is what matters. though much worry about his policy positions one way or another because he will be a policy maker. the president's policies will go but the fact that the field that they can be a good team, to me that is the important thing. allows the president nominates somebody who is just, in my mind on qualify for something, i tend to think a leader should get to they want because we will hold him responsible for it. >> thank you, general mcchrystal. we have to stop now. [applause] thank you. >> primetime continues in a few moments with dr. fred kaplan on how the chain's u.s. military strategy from his book the insurgents. in an hour we look back at the gulf war and a collection of essays by journalists, government officials, and scholars. and jewelry year retired general mcchrystal on his memoir. several events to tell you about tomorrow. says >> the communism of china basically is communism in name only these days and preserves the power of the members of the communist party, but they basically, through -- opening the country up and now it has be
that upheld the individual mandate provision of president obama's health care reform legislation, and i'm wondering, for those of us who are observers of the court, apart from the holding in the case, what lessons might we learn from the experience of that case? >> i hope it's a case that will be taught in law schools. i fully expect that my defense saying that this legislation fit within the commerce clause easily, that that will someday become the law of the land. i was astonished, frankly, at the majority view about that case. but i think it's a wonderful teaching tool. and as you know, the law and the meaning was a failed. achieve -- was upheld. the chief justice decided it didn't fit within the commerce power but the tax power is very broad, so what the law calls a penalty was, in fact, a tax and so it was upheld on that basis. so i do think the commerce clause ruling will turn out to be an aberration. and you can compare it to the way it was before 1937. when the court, now referred to as nine old men, and they were striking down economic and social legislation from the states, fr
: meanwhile, the cuts the country were about to face were president obama's idea but he is hoping you don't remember that. >> they are not fair and they will hurt our economy and add hundreds of thousands of americans to the unemployment rolls. >> steve: no wonder he doesn't want to take credit for it. new blame game. >> brian: how much does this woman love president obama. so much so voted them for six times. fox and friends starts now. >>> fox and friends, brian, welcome back. where did you do go and did you miss us? >> first off the chinese hacked my blackberry i can't open up any of my emails. i should have put the back on first. >> steve: see if it works? >> gretchen: i thought that congress' approval waiting went up 15%. all right. in the meantime, as he fixes his blackberry let's get positive to a developing story. stay tuned on to fox and friends report. >> they are charging pre-med dated murder. they found steroids in his home. good morning, amy. >> investigators say they found two boxes of steroids and needles in oscar pistorius' home. a sigh, a real sigh went across the courtro
the obama administration says the iranian nuclear capability is such a threat is because it would cascade to proliferation around the middle east, but love it if you could address that as well. >> i will answer the questions posed very quickly. i am just a dot middle east expert. this session on iran is talking about iran, but i have a great deal of sympathy for the sentiment. i do believe north korea is a very big problem. we often have the debate if iran is irrational. from what i understand about north korea, you could barely fill a symbol. my sense is they are not always entirely rational either and there are some things going on in that regime that could lead them to do things that are irrational and that worries me enormously. the issue of proliferation gets to north korea as well. proliferation is a very big concern about iran's nuclearization. it is one reason i suggested it's better that if we do not have to continue going down this road and if they never crossed the with the position threshold -- teh weaponization threshold. there is a hysteria on both sides. yes, proliferation
and president barack obama in flames. patient -- negotiations are underway for stronger sanctions following north korea's word nuclear test -- third nuclear test. police have broken up the crowd. demonstrators were blocking a gate to a visitor center in melbourne. the visitor called on australia to ban immigration from other nations. u.s. vice president joe biden has urged americans not to use semiautomatic weapons for protection because shotguns would have the same deterrent effect gens intruders. biden is leading the administration's campaign to -- for stricter controls on firearms. >> what can we do that would not prevent you from exercising every right you have to defend yourself and, at the same time, engage in recreation or hunting or sporting activities that would not be eliminated -- limited by the elimination of that particular weapon? that is the balance. we can argue about where that balance is, but there is not any argument that the government can impact that balance. >> venezuela's president has visited hugo chavez. they met in the venezuelan capital on tuesday. chavez has been
the beginning you mentioned listening to the silent majority, so president obama and secretary clinton have both rebalance their focus to asia-pacific, and you have worked with burma. my question is for southeast asia, will you share your vision for how to build capacity for burma and how to build burma up. also, how to work into that the code of conduct and the rule of law in the southeast asia see. would that help to resolve conflicts we are concerned about? >> i think it would for sure. since i have not had a chance to visit burma myself yet, i am probably less conversant with it than the other major cases we are working on a month but clearly there is plenty of opportunity for progress in this space and u s policy really trying to drive that. in terms of the rest of southeast asia, the way we look at future engagements, i think there probably are a couple of countries we have to be sensitive to, and that we are reviewing, but we have not gotten much beyond that stage. so, sorry not to be better informed to answer your question. >> way in the back row there. >> thank you, claudia. will davis.
department has two reasons for this. it has done this in both the bush administration and now in the obama administration. clearly, whatever limits, and i think the limits are very severe now on the united states in dealing with the proliferation question at all, but any prospect of dealing with it, i think is nonexistent, as long as the state department maintains this kind of blackout policy in, not only providing any information about it, but in frankly wanting to deal with this at all come in negotiations with north korea. chris hill took it off the table in the february 29 agreement does not mention proliferation. and that's just an example of the situation. so this relationship that north korea has with iran, i believe, has entered a new and more formidable and threatening stage, frankly, at this point. >> well, thank you, larry. if there is someone from state department. yes, hi. you are not represent the state department. okay, now the floor is open to anybody can comment do either joe or larry's comments, argument, what not. the floor is open. raise your hand. okay, identify yourse
these and not undermine the market. it is a remarkably tough thing to do which is why for example president obama i think rightly puts in the labor law enforcement along with the work site enforcement. these things are very difficult to manage and finally, again, given the argument for why we need the bilateral management, one of the reasons mexico's jargon cultural program of canada has worked is that it's been tough loved. they basically singled of married men, which ups the likelihood that it is going to return. they've also got to the mexican government involved so if you do not return coming you don't qualify to re-enter the candidate to work again. i don't see the u.s. putting this kind of practices and to place. that is another reason that it's difficult to basically liberalize programs because the intent of the temporary program is people will return. getting that to happen is a system of challenge. >> i'm sorry to announce we have almost come to the end of our time here. but we do have just a couple of minutes for one last question. so, we could take one from this side of the aisle and i would b
the obama could ministers also did in terms of playing from guam to deal with the north korean kim jong-il and the continuing under kim jong-un. this cycle was repeated obviously recently with the december 12, 2012, rocket launch that was successful, and it showed come in 10 straight for the first time critical technology for a long range missile. so why put a satellite into but the important of a builder is it demonstrate long range missile capacity. only eight months earlier, of course a similar rocket shattered over the oc so this was a significant stride forward for north korea military perspective. that was met with a unanimous resolution, 27 and the u.n. security council, which undertook a fair proportion response of targeted sanctions on the space agency and scientists, but it was met with disproportionate asymmetric threats out of north korea, and even though u.n. security council talk about a roadmap to get back to the six-party talks, they were obviously ignored a north korea now has gone ahead with a third nuclear test this month. this new provocations begins a new cycle, so
we can do. i will discuss that with president obama when we get back. >> reporter: what senator patrick leahy is referring to here, when he's talking about not changing their government or our government is precisely what the cue nbans said alan gross i going to do to destabilize the government here. he also told me that alan gross is not a spy and should be freed immediately, and this group was somewhat disappointed not to be able to advance that at all. from the cuban point of view, they have not reacted officially to this trip. they have said the trip took place. cuban president fidel castro met with them, from the cuban point of view, there's a number of things they would like to see, not least of all the beginning of discussion and this long five decades old u.s. economic trade sanctions against cuba. but as we heard, senator patrick leahy said, this is now in the hands of president obama. how he would take this group's recommendations once they return to washington. >> patrick, briefly, tell us about this. what some call the alan gross situation. it's been behind the scene
